Jessica Alba Juggles Being A Mom, Actress, And CEOBy: Rachel Kolman - April 12, 2014
Jessica Alba is conquering all lately. The actress, spokeswoman, mother, and CEO has been successfully balancing movie shoots, corporate meetings, and changing diapers. Jessica has six movies lined up this year (she’s currently shooting horror flick The Veil ) and recently became the beauty ambassador for Braun in their #Breakfree campaign. All while running her own business, The Honest Company, which makes cleaning products, personal care products, and detergents that are non-toxic and hypo-allergenic. Dang!
About her partnership with Braun, the company says they chose Jessica because she is a “strong, passionate woman and an advocate for others — the perfect ambassador to talk about the role our products play in helping women to feel their best.” Jessica adds: “I completely relate to feelings of self-doubt, but I also know how empowering female positive reinforcement is. Let’s give each other the confidence to break free from self-doubt and all walk a little bit taller.”
Meanwhile, The Honest Company just turned two years old, with a Santa Monica headquarters that employs 100 staff. “It’s a game-changer in the family product business; t’s grown quicker than we ever imagined. I’m really proud of it,” Jessica gushes when talking of her business.
Of course, Jessica is most well-known for her numerous acting roles, perhaps most famously for Fantastic Four and Sin City. Jessica will reprise her role as dancer Nancy Callahan in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, a sequel to the 2005 comic adaptation, though the events of this film take place before the first one. Alba’s role in the film will be adapted from existing Sin City comics by Frank Miller, while other characters popping up in the sequel, including Joseph Gordon-Levitt, are receiving brand new stories.
But perhaps what means the most to Jessica is being a mom; Alba has two daughters, Honor, 6, and Haven, 3. She married husband Cash Warren six years ago, when she was seven months pregnant. Seems to still be bliss as the family was recently seen vacationing in Berlin on their “spring break.” Kudos to Jessica for balancing her busy, but happy, healthy, and fun lifestyle.
